When you have good friends, a steak and a drink of choice, you have a great time. And that is exactly what we did on Veterans Day at the Eagle River VFW. Our annual dinner was fun as we had 48 folks. The Quilts of Valor was there and recognized Bob Moore, Jim Pazsint, Milton Cross and Steve Fisher with their Quilts of Valor. Bob Doehl our member and Deupty Director for the State of Alaska Veterans gave all Vietnam Veterans a special book called A Time To Honor, super nice. We discussed 2018 events and will have a planning meeting sometime in February , so stay tuned ...... surprises just around the corner!
